This coming Sunday the ride will start in Brighton (Gosport to be specific). The first half of it is flat and if you prefer to keep it that way, you can take the short cut and make it 44k instead of the original 56k.
After 32 km of relatively flat, scenic, riding, the long route heads up into the infamous Northumberland Hills. The worse of the hilly can be avoided by taking the shortcut! There is a cafe nearby for those interested in lunch after the ride.
Here is the route map. Please take a moment to print it out for yourselves and bring it with you.
Start time: 10:00
